A deep, satisfying, Green has come to the Ozarks by way of rain. Gentle, soaking, rain. We are expecting this off and on for the next five days. With the rain falling upon us (and I hope I am one of the Just) I decided to get some pics from our yard of the local vegetation.
I came home from work to find that one of the rain barrels was empty. The hose had fallen down and leaked out all the precious supply of rainwater. I fixed the problem and after today’s rain, we have a refilled barrel.
I am reminded of a saying that my older brother, Rick, liked to repeat while we were young boys, “Empty barrels make the most noise.” I love it!
A while back we had a severe freeze (-8 degrees) that got our liriope. It will come back.
During the afternoon, Jan and I tackled some chores. I went to work on a screen door. I removed the old screen, painted it and repaired some of the corners. I will make the lower (right hand side) section solid because the cat claws the screen when it wants in. I do not like clawed screen….
Jan decided on a bold move and got up into the attic to prepare for next weekend’s yard sale! For a while more than just rain was coming down.
She got quite a bit accomplished for the day and ended up bringing this box down to clean out. It has papers, pictures, etc., from her parents, now passed on.
The rain continues on as I write and will do so for a number of days coming up. But that is alright, since it will have to end someday and then we will get the sunshine back.
